Whether your kids are just learning their basic facts or need review and practice, give them a little extra screen time to practice online. Here are some fun games to improve their recall and speed.

Mathmagician is pretty straightforward timed practice. You type in the answers to each problem while watching the timer bar mark your remaining time.

Mathblox is more fun - blocks with numbers on them fall, and you click on two blocks to complete a number sentence.

Da-numba is addition only, but you get to use more than two numbers to add up to the given number. When da-numba is 6, you can click 4 and 1, or 3 and 3, or 4, 1, and 1 - etc. Caution - there are a lot of other games on this site within easy clicking distance, and some may not be suitable for young kids so keep an eye on them.

FunBrain Arcade offers the chance to enter your grade level and gives harder problems for higher grades. Also, it has many different games, and success at one game gives you the key to the next so there's motivation to persist.
